|Bob Yates, Second Visit, Art Waves #112|

We invited him back as a writer, storyteller and sort of community memoirist, to tell us some stories about Dundas, where he grew up. On this subject as on most, Bob Yates has insights that will surprise you--and a past that is even more colourful than we imagined!
